Back in February I stopped by my sister’s house for her birthday and I asked her what did she do with her couch. She told me it was out in her garage, so I asked her what she was going to do with it and she said she’d probably just get rid of it. So I told her I wanted it. I had been considering getting a black leather reclining love seat for my living room, but figured her L-shaped black leather couch with 2 reclining seats and a hide-a-bed would work.
She called me last Saturday (the day before Easter) and told me that her daughter in law’s brother was coming out my way on Easter and would bring me the couch. Okay, no problem there except…
The little gears in my head started turning and cranking. I really should get the carpets cleaned before putting the couch in and maybe paint. I mean the living room and dining room hadn’t been painted in almost 7 years and it was time for a change.
Michael brought the couch and we set it in front of the garage. Monday I went and picked out the paint and called the carpet cleaning company and set it up for them to come out Thursday. Started painting Tuesday. Called carpet cleaning company and postponed them until Friday (tomorrow). Finished painting just a little bit ago. Hopefully the carpet will dry quickly tomorrow because I need to get everything back in place because we are expecting rain! Yikes! And I want to have everything back in order Saturday morning before my son gets here with his 2 dogs. Yeah, there goes my clean carpets. LOL
But also I entered a 24 hour short story contest that starts at 10 a.m. pst Saturday and I won’t know the subject or word count until I get their e-mail at 10 a.m.
And to top everything off; My house is a mess!
Here are a few of the before pictures. You’ll have to wait until Sunday for the after. Now gotta go! So much still to do!
